What everyone else has said plus:

Go find some employment of any kind. It will boost your morale a bit plus if you get a job working with the public you might not have to use POF anymore?

The reality of the situation is that unless you are willing to accept someone in the same boat as you are,then dating in your current situation will not be very successful.

I am not very well of financially.No debts,but no great amount of savings either,I am also not well physically so if I can manage to rent a small apartment then I really don't see why most people can't.Even a one room bachelor apartment that is shabby and run down is preferable to reverting to my childhood.

To have to live with my mother again and have no privacy,and no say about the runnings of my own home would drive me bonkers.

A lot of people our age are living with parents right now. The economy is screwed up and it's hard to find work even if you go outside of your own field.

That being said no one needs to know you live with your parents. It's not like you're going to bring a potential date home the first night. Unless of course she's homeless but then she's not going to care who you live with.

My first girl-friend was from out of state and she was up her with her husband who threw her out of the house. She ended up staying in the spare bedroom at my parents house for a week before asking me out. We dated for another week while living together in my parents house before she went back to her home state. I would of gone with her but I had a contract I couldn't get out of. I was going to go meet her again when my contract expired but the long distance thing wasn't working out and ended up asking her to just be friends.

It sucks donkey azz to date guys who live with their mom and dad. It's really embarrassing when you're having sex on the kitchen table and in walk his parents.They also really hate it when you try and watch porn together in the living room.

That's why you don't do it in public living spaces. You can do that when you get your own house but when you live with other people, even if you have room mates not saying your parents, you don't have sex in public.

I've had a lock on my bedroom and bathroom door sense I was a teenager. I wish the locks were there the entire time growing up because my mom has no respect for privacy. My dad, he knocks on the door and waits for an answer. My mom just walks in without any warning. I can't prove it but I'm pretty sure my mom's a pedophile and was intentionally trying to see me naked.

Wow who knew your own kitchen was a public place. How strange mine does not have people coming in and out of it all day long.Only people I let in the door are allowed in.I have yet to have a stranger walkthrough yet.

Got be able to take care of yourself before you can take care of a woman,..


I use to think I needed a job to go on dates. Not that I ever got many dates anyway but that really isn't the case.

I've been on several dates where we didn't pay for anything. Walking is free and gives you plenty of time to talk. And if she'll invite you over you can eat in instead of eating out. (That didn't sound right...)

There were also dates were we did spend some money but it wasn't always me spending money on her or her spending money on me. We were both equals.

Basically I don't have to take care of her. We take care of each other. That's what a relationship is. If a relationship was just the man does everything and the woman does nothing then I'd rather be single.
